YSL // Premium Skin Care Collection

Premium skincare, yes please. I do love skincare - while some are all about the mascara, tan and lashes I'm all about the lotions and potions I can slap on my face and body. I want healthy, glowing skin and I want it in the easiest possible way, even if that means purchasing overly priced products. 

Yves Saint Laurent are joining in with the overly priced skincare hype and launching a new collection this spring. While some claim to be filled with rare ingredients, exotic additives and all natural whats-a-macall-it's this collection really does have exotic ingredients in it. For example, Saffron is a key ingredient and is one of the most expensive ingredients around in both cookies, perfumery and skincare. It can also be described as ''red gold'' simply because it is so expensive *gulp* The saffron that's included in this collection contain a high concentration of a unique glycan called ' crocin.' 

Crocin is chock filled with antioxidants and are medically used to help treat depression. It has major anticarcinogenic properties which help to slow down the spread of cells that may become cancer in the future and increases cell communication and metabolism which helps to slow down the signs of ageing. Honestly it's just nice to see a big L'Oreal brand include ingredients that are anti-carcinogenic rather than the other way around. 

Crocin is also an anti-pyretic and analgesic so this will be a great product addition for those who suffer from acne due to it's ability to reduce the heat, inflammation and pain caused by cysts, boils and pimples. You may have guessed but Crocin as an ingredient is basically a painkiller - it's used as the main active ingredient in Tylenol and Panadol.  

The collection aims to soften fine lines and wrinkles, reduce puffiness and dark circles and hydrate your skin to perfection. There's a few product in the range and those are... 

*50ml YSL Or Rouge Cream
*200ml YSL Or Body Lotion
*15ml YSL Or Eye Cream 

The range will launch initially into Harrods some time this month. I'll keep you posted on the actual date as I find out. Warning though it,s going to be very expensive but given it's abilities it's one I may save for or, wait until it comes down in price. What are your thoughts on this?

  1. This sounds wonderful, but not something I'll be investing in as I just have the cash to splash!
